        Glad you will get to see it, Bob! It really is a phenomenal film. It took me 3 hours to watch it because I kept rewinding some scenes over and over. :lol:

          Rewinding some scenes? You are strong, PJ. :lol: I had heart palpitations almost all the way through, pausing the video a couple of times to calm myself, but at least I made it to the end. It was powerful.

            Yes, it was gripping, but there were so many great scenes featuring the Prez — particularly the night he made the decision — that I kept replaying to get each and every little nuance. I’m a tiny details kinda girl, what can I say? :-D

              Aaah! Now I get it. :grin: :grin:
              Chicken that I am, I hardly noticed the Prez scenes as I was dying to get to the end. I kept eyeing the time line to see how much longer I would have to suffer. What can I say in my defense? I had a similar reaction in Red Tails, closed eyes and covered ears for much of it, but couldn’t leave early because *I* had planned the movie night, inviting a handful of friends. :roll:

    President Obama will stay in Illinois on Election Day, and, aside from playing basketball, will sit for more than a dozen radio and television interviews.

    Spokeswoman Jen Psaki said he will potentially reach hundreds of thousands of voters that way.

    “There’s no plans to leave the state of Illinois at this point. I don’t think that will change,” Psaki told reporters aboard Air Force One on Monday. “We made the call that’s the way to reach people on Election Day.”

    Psaki said Team Obama finds it “no surprise” that GOP challenger Mitt Romney is considering a trip to Ohio on Election Day.

    “Without that state, it’s a rocky road for them to victory, an insurmountable road, in our view,” she said, noting that she believes Ohio will go for Obama. “We’re confident of victory there tomorrow.”

    “….As for Ryan’s claim that, essentially, another Obama term will destroy Western civilization as we know it? Render unto me a fucking break already.

    UPDATE: Some folks pointed out on Twitter that it’s a dog-whistle. Yes, I think it’s a dog-whistle, too — but what isn’t these days? I can’t even be bothered to care today. I’m more concerned about drilling the following into everybody’s noggin: CONTRACEPTIVE ACCESS FOR WOMEN HAS FUCK-ALL TO DO WITH RELIGIOUS LIBERTY.”

    Vice President Joe Biden didn’t say it would be a blowout win, as he has in recent interviews, but he said Team Obama’s firewall in the midwest is holding up.

    “I’m feeling good. I really am. But you know, as that old expression goes, it’s all over but the shouting,” he told reporters at during a stop at Mimis Cafe in Sterling, Va., on Monday. “It feels good though. It feels good. You’ve been with me long enough to know that I’m always optimistic. But I really do feel good.”

    According to a pool report, Biden was asked if he thought it would be a landslide as he predicted in a recent MSNBC interview.

    “I think we’re going to win and I think we’re going to win,” he began, before pausing and saying, “You know that old joke, I’ll take one vote majority. But I think we have a clear shot of doing well in the so-called firewall.

    “I think we’ll win Ohio. I think we’ll win Wisconsin. I think we’ll win Iowa. I think we’ll win Nevada. I think we’ll win New Hampshire,” he said, according to the pool report. “I think Florida will be close but I think we have a real shot at winning. And this state, we’ve got a clear shot at winning.

    “So you know – my grandfather would say, by the grace of God and the good will of the neighbors.”

    Just came from Clinton’s rally in downtown Pittsburgh. He was great and lots of excited supporters. Had a blast! It had been pretty quiet lately in these parts since no one was really paying attention to PA until Mittens last ditch effort here.
    Ads are picking up on the TV but wayy too late to make any type of difference. PA is staying BLUE!!

              the president will continue to need our support, all through his second term. the rwnjs are not going away just yet! pbo is going through all this work and sweat to win re-election SO THAT HE CAN FINISH THE WORK HE STARTED! he needs us for that, and i am hoping we’ll still be meeting here.

    How has Todd Akin been able to give a different name for his arrests?

    “… Akin went by a different name, which made public-records searches tricky — and now we know the total number is actually quite a bit larger.

    Missouri Republican Senate candidate Rep. Todd Akin was arrested at least eight times in the 1980s at anti-abortion protests, according to newly obtained records.

    That is four arrests in addition to four the St. Louis Post-Dispatch reported last month based on a review of its contemporaneous coverage of protests. The four additional arrests each appear to have occurred outside a women’s health clinic in Ballwin, Missouri in St. Louis County between 1985 and 1987.

    “Right Wing Watch,” a project of People For the American Way, a nonprofit group critical of Akin’s ties to what it calls radical elements of the pro-life movement, obtained incident reports on the arrests Friday from the St. Louis Country Police Department under Missouri’s sunshine law, and provided them to National Journal.

    …. As for the larger context, if Akin is elected tomorrow, he’ll have one of the more extensive criminal records of any U.S. senator in history.”

    I seem to remember that in 2008, PBO outperformed the polls in several states, even though the final popular vote was fairly close to what was originally predicted. I think the same thing happens tomorrow. Total margin of victory will be 5-6% and EV will be 332.

      Actually, I do not remember any Presidential candidate holding any rallies ever on election day. There have always been very strict election day rules, but they may only have been state rules with each state having their own rules. I wondered if Mitt were breaking any laws by having those rallies on election day?

      I have never anticipated seeing two lowlifes lose as much as I am looking forward to Romney/Ryan losing tomorrow.

      I want them to lose early and unequivocally.

      I recommend that everyone hold on to something nailed down wherever they are, because the amount of spinning that is going to come from Chuck Todd, Howard Fineman, The GOP and the Romney/Ryan camp is going to wobble the earth’s axis as they lose state, after state, after state.

    Well, it is done. I worked to GOTV. Registered new voters in FL. Corrected registrations with name and address change. I have driven people to the polls to vote early and today…I waited in line for 2 hours to get my husbands absentee ballot. You remember him, he is a Republican and wasn’t going to vote this time. He filled his out with PBO at the top. He dropped it off as he left one job and headed to his other one. Today was spent running around Palm Beach getting my things together for my Precinct tomorrow. I am a clerk of a huge Precinct. There are about 3000 listed on my registers. I have 12 people I am in charge of at the polls tomorrow. I picked up 2 dozen bagels and plenty of Smear. I am spending the evening getting ready for a very early start tomorrow.

    Just a side note. I was driving around getting all my things together. I drove down Boynton Beach Blvd. and saw quite a few Romney signs in the median. What bothers me as a proud President Obama supporter is that some tagged all the signs with 47%. Then driving down Atlantic Blvd. I saw a huge Billboard owned by CBS. This billboard was 100 feet away from a Synagog. It was a picture of a Nuclear weapon aimed at Israel with President Obamas name on it. I have never been so shocked in all my life.

    Chips, Thank you for all you do. I will check back later to watch the final rally. I will be out the door tomorrow at 5:00am. I am excited and filled with so much hope.

    Peace and Love to all,
    Sue

    Other than a few seats in 3rd deck, the 21,000 seat Columbus arena was packed. Good early vote numbers in this article also.

      What is the writer talking about? I don’t see empty seats except for behind the stage. They were probably told not to sit behind the stage. Sound like they want to downplay the rally.

      That’s a lovely video. Mrs. Obama is a gorgeous and brilliant woman. Would love to see her in national politics after 2016 (kind of like Hilary Clinton).

    I will likely be joining the sobbing masses tonight too, watching the final campaign appearance in Des Moines, “Ending where it all began”. PBO will deliver remarks at his very first campaign headquarters. I watched every minute as it began in my old home state, watched all those first small gatherings in the farm backyards——watched the farmer in overalls come up to Barack Obama and say, “Well, I don’t know if I’m going to vote for you or not yet, but I thought I’d come and meet ya and check ya out.” And Obama said he understood and knew that he wanted to kick the tires a liitle bit before he bought. They shared a laugh, and I thought—-sold! I watched as the gatherings grew in numbers and the little old ladies started asking to have their pictures taken with him and asked if they could take him out for lunch——and giggled. And on and on it went until that great Ia. caucus night——so monumental—–he asked Iowans to give him a “fair hearing” and they did and they liked what they heard and they sent him on his way. I can’t believe this is the last one.

    I for one will be happy when “campaigning” is over! I thought when we elected him, I could breathe easy. And look forward to progressive, liberal policies being enacted. I could actually look forward to State of the Union addresses, and speeches by a President I have respect for. And I could be happy and proud when he was meeting with leaders of nations around the world, both abroad and here at home. And I have had all that and more, but I still feel like with the obstruction by the Republicans in Congress, that the campaign of 2008 never ended. Because there was Sarah Palin, their attack dog, on FOX news always lambasting anything our President did or said and to the point of even calling him ugly names, saying ugly, sexually tinged remarks about him, about Michelle. And she was not the only one. And there was the campaigning for healthcare reforms, with the town hall meetings and the ugliness that accompanied that. Then there was 2010 and the senate and house races. I want a landslide so bad I can hardly stand it. I want to put a big sign in my yard that reads, “the people have spoken, again!” Then I want the GOP to go away. I want this President to be able to breathe and to work for the next four years to take our country so far FORWARD that no other party or movement can ever take us back. I want to work with him. I would love to see the Jobs Act passed in its entirety and have jobs created and volunteer positions created to rebuild our infrastructure, enhance it, move it forward. I dream of these things. I am ranting, sorry.
